I can't say enough about Dr. MacRae and his staff. They are very kind and really do seem to care. I think you are in the best hands if you choose to go there whether it be surgery or an appointment. However, I think their wait times are TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. I do realize that Dr. MacRae is the best of the best and has a fantastic reputation, but with that being said waiting 30-45 minutes is just not acceptable. If you go, be prepared to wait....and wait. Everything else EXCELLENT!

Just about to schedule lasik for my second eye. Doctor, office and results were fantastic for first eye. Decided to rely on monovision, so only had one eye done, but ready to have other eye done now almost 2 years later. Wouldn't consider anyone else.

Dr. MacRae has perform Lasik surgery for me about 10 years ago, and just removed 2 cataracts ... all encounters are professional and with a ZERO complication rate.
